Lou Henry Elementary School

Iowa Architecture

Iowa is home to a remarkably diverse array of architectural styles from colonial to postmodern. Architects as well known as Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry have left their mark in the state alongside prairie homesteaders. As we enter into a new decade, a greater emphasis is being placed on eco-friendly architecture, as evidenced by the upswing in LEED-certified buildings. The Daily Palette is proud to present a wide variety of Iowa architecture from many eras and movements.

Lou Henry Elementary School, Waterloo, 2005

Eco-friendliness is taken to the extreme in this elementary school.  Sustainable design and systems saves the school district over $50,000 a year in utilities.
